    If the volume of air in the shocks chamber is changed. Doesn't that effect the pressure? How does the volume change without changing the molecules per cubic mm

    Sounds like the RAMP is a good addition then! Such a fun looking ride!

    No idea -- I don't weigh my bikes.

    I build them the way I want them, and then they weigh what they weigh.

    We spent the last week riding dry dirt and rock, aka chunk, in central and eastern Arizona. Even got a short ~4 hour ride in Moab en route home yesterday.

    We had a fairly even split between go-long XC rides and chunky, sessiony rides. A day in the McDowells (Tom's Thumb!), a day on SoMo (Holbert! Kiwanis!), a lap through the desert and over Ripsey, even a Picketpost to Kelvin day.

    Jeny definitely had a speed advantage on her 29+ on the go-long days. Attached pic shows what the sessiony days were like, and even though she's a bit better rider than I, I was able to coerce my B Fat Fatillac over, down, and through a few more things each day than she did.

    Which confirms my original assessment that 29+ is more efficient for all-day adventures, and B Fat handily wins when tech and chunk are on tap.

    Does that mean I'm starting to wish I still had a 29+ rig?

    Not really. The small speed advantage is irrelevant when you're as slow as I am. But the sure-footedness is appreciated almost every minute of every chunky ride.

    Wow, great stuff. It's neat to hear about the different bikes you built for different wheel/tire sizes to help reduce the impact of that variable.
